“Creating components with automated sizing behavior saves a lot of time during the process. They also let us think more like a developer that has to implement the real application. That is why it is essential to master Constraints and Auto Layout in Figma.”
Joey Banks shows a nice use case for combining Layout Grids with Constraints. For a deeper dive, check out my older article on this feature.
Here's a quick @figmadesign speedrun to show how you can combine Layout Grids with Constraints to create the perfect effect when resizing a frame/component with nested items. ↔️✨ pic.twitter.com/cMSken1lJO
In the first part, Rogie uses constraints and components to build navigation that scales from mobile to desktop. In the second part, he shows how to use Auto Layout to design flexible grids, hero, and card components that adapt to any browser size.
Great video by Figma55 channel, explaining how to use stretchy Layout Grids in conjunction with Constraints. It’s based on my article from a few weeks ago, but video is a great medium to demonstrate that trick.
